Batch files

While I’m sure there’s a much cleverer way to do this involving Python, Lua, remote servers running Cruise Control and so on, at Simul we build using Batch files.

Basically, we use MS-DOS. It’s still called MS-DOS – that’s how it’s referred to in the latest Windows 7 help documentation. So yes, we’re using DOS to build our libraries, and have had to learn quite a lot about how DOS commands, or Command Prompt, or Batch – whatever it’s called – actually works.

Over the next couple of weeks, in between GDC sessions, I plan to summarize what we’ve learned.
